Hi Soman,

You can try this...

Create an Aggregated Measure

Avg [_ByGroup_] ('B'n) / Avg [_ForAll_] ('B'n)

Instead of Avg you can take SUM...

Hope this will help..

Let me know

Thanks & Regards,

Column sub totals and totals is aggregated based on the statistic used. There isn't a way to override the statistic calculation you desire in the default cross table object.

If Averages are chosen then the sub total/total is an average. It doesn't make sense to see a sub total as the sum of averages when the underlying reported line items are averages.

Kind Regards,

Michelle

I don't think this is possible. You cannot set the aggregation type in the data pane for an aggregated measure, so you cannot sum averages.

Remember that VA does not use the contents of the table to determine the totals, it uses the underlying dataset. So where the averages in the table are a [_ByGroup_] average, the total shown under the table is the same aggregation but as a [_ForAll_] average.
